"Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary."

secondly, sorry for such a ‘dark’ set… it ended up heavier than I thought… odd, because I was in a ‘light’ mood last night… hmm…
_________

just playing around with color accents on my digital camera… the results aren't fantastic and I don't like how grainy they got - but hey - it's all a learning experience! I know for sure I need better lighting next time… a night light doesn't cut it for those effect… I think.

anyone else up for modeling? hehe. I am tired of shooting myself, and it seems conceited, but the only person I have available! my son doesn't sit still long enough to try new things and my sisters think i'm a lunatic for taking so many photos! I love taking people photos I just need to find more willing people! :)
_________
and the song is……….
Alanis Morissette - You Learn [google.com]; because really.. you live - you learn! and i hope to do just that thanks to all for the help, comments, and constructive criticism I receive on here!

#1 - red accents… my hair isnt that red.. but i think it looks cool

#2 - NO post-processing done. This was accomplished by just changing the color accent settings on my digital camera before shooting. hahah after i seen this - it looks like a Gatorade commercial, i must have been drinkin the lemon-lime gatorade. >.

#3 - I don't know… sin city-ish, perhaps?!

#4 - my Angelina Jolie face?!?!??

#5 - rose petal blur sort of… don't know how this one got like this!

I think that it's hard not to be slaves of the ordinary. Great set. #2 stunning and Anais Morisette is one of my preferred singers

Very sexy set! Go as dark as you want if this is the result...I feel you're pain. Everyone in my house is sick of the camera except me.

Hello, there, I'm back from the dungeons... the back office, anyway I'm back!

I'm tired but I must say this:

- pattyb is absolutely right about RozariaS being absolutely right about you looking absolutely gorgeous just like absolutely righteous Charlize Theron!!!

And that's all! No it isn't: what happened to your titles since I've been gone?! :)

#2 is excellent! I see you're using it for your pic photo. It does look like a gatorade commercial but I still like that effect. Fun experiments!

I'm glad someone else is considered a lunatic for taking so many photos! I wish I knew how to use some of those special effects...not even sure if my camera can do them, actually. I actually like the "gatorade" one the best.
